The coronavirus, which causes COVID-19 disease, has unimaginably affected every industry. Among all industries, the tourism and hospitality industry is considered the worst-hit industry, contributing 9% of India's total GDP; this paper presents an overview of the Indian tourism and hospitality industry before COVID-19. While sending out survey forms, we included general questions like gender, occupation, age, level of education, yearly income, what used to be their choice of location for a holiday before COVID-19, how much they yearly spent on holiday, how they plan their holiday trip, to understand the basic details and reliability of participants, also we did not ask the name of a participant to maintain the anonymity and privacy of a participant, which helped us to get an accurate data. How customers' changed mindsets different priorities forced the tourism and hospitality industry to change the way of providing service also how the changed time has forced businesses to look for other opportunities to survive in the industry, Moreover here we have test different Sanitization and safety measurements using Friedman test to understand what are the factors that can affect the business of tourism and hospitality industry after the COVID-19 pandemic, as observed by Assaf & Scuderi.
